I’m saving up so I can buy myself a Korean textbook. Looking at the prices on online shops, I just realized how expensive these things are and now I’m having a hard time choosing which book I should buy first since I have limited amount of money hidden somewhere in my closet and money doesn’t grow on trees so I need to choose wisely. Oh, I almost forgot to mention how expensive the shipping fee is going to cost me. Sometimes, the shipping fee is more expensive than the book itself. How I wish I can just get in a huge box and ship myself to Korea right now.
I wanted to buy Elementary Korean but since I already have a pdf file of it, I decided not to and just buy something else. I want to buy Yonsei Korean 1 and I’ve been searching for reviews about it but I can’t find any. I’m also considering the Integrated Korean (beginner level, of course) since I’ve heard good reviews from other people. Which textbook should I buy, the Yonsei Korean 1 or the Integrated Korean Beginning 1? Or do you know other textbooks which are better (or cheaper LOL)?
I wonder if there’s a bookstore in Manila selling any of this books. I doubt it. I’ve only seen Korean phrasebooks and dictionaries so far and no Korean textbooks.
